Two Plates. One Herbivore. One Omnivore. Which is Which?

Great article by Robert Krulwich on a underground supper club meal thrown by Mike Lee of Studiofeast.

Excerpt…

One night, somewhere, they won’t say where, but I’m guessing it was a Manhattan loft with a big kitchen, a food anarchist named Mike Lee got 40 people to perform a daring experiment in food camouflage.

Everybody sat down to what looked like the same meal. But it wasn’t the same. Here’s the first course. Half the diners got a spherified apricot puree in a coconut soup with mint. On the other half, salmon roe in Vichyssoise. One recipe for meat eaters. One for vegetarians. Very different ingredients. Yet at first glance they look almost identical, no?

How was I not at this meal?! Unfair. Hopefully I can make it to one of these at some point…
